Forum: texts Subject: Dual language OCR for dictionaries

For translation dictionaries,
e.g. http://www.archive.org/details/Tysk-svensk_ordbok_Hoppe_1920
OCR needs to enable both languages to give good results. I tried to set language to "German; Swedish", but this appears not to have worked. Is there a way?

Also, this dictionary uses a thin vertical bar to separate parts of words. I know that it is possible in ABBYY Finereader to allow a special character to appear inside words, giving good results, ignoring this vertical bar. But this option doesn't seem to be enabled at the Internet Archive.

I would need to check on your other point about ignoring the vertical lines.
